Share this story:

The head of Nigeria’s police has dissolved its Special Anti-Robbery Squad with immediate effect on Sunday 11th Oct., a police statement said.

This was prompted by days of #ENDSARS protests across the country against alleged brutality by the controversial unit.

The protests broke out after a video circulated last week allegedly showing members of the unit – known as SARS – shooting dead a man in Delta state. It also prompted a globally-trending social media campaign to abolish the squad.

The #ENDSARS protest has been engineered by loads of celebrities and public figures in the country and world over.
